Posted Dec 10, 2013

Google is going to add screen mirroring to the Google Chromecast device very soon. Android devices will soon be able to mirror their screen to TVs just like how iOS supports AirPlay on Apple TV. After Google released Android 4.4.1 last week, it was intended primary to fix the camera on the Nexus 5. However, there were some changes to the Android Open Source Project that hints at what could be coming soon. The code changes above were found by Cyanogen Inc. co-founder Koushik Dutta.
